About this listing

Women Preferred! LGBTQ friendly. We have a comfy couch space in a quiet apartment for you if you love cats. Cozy simple home borders the Mexican neighborhoods Little Village & Pilsen. Do you love Mexican food and riding the train? You will love us.

You will have access to a full kitchen, bathroom, washer/dryer (in basement) shared with myself and my part-time roommate, and possibly one other airbnb guest. There is also a very friendly cat.

Guest access

You will have access to a full kitchen, bathroom, washer/dryer (in basement) shared with myself and my part-time roommate and possibly one other airbnb guest.

Interaction with guests

can share some conversation, an occasional meal, or walk in the park, or a place where people can enjoy their solitude. Perhaps an occasional board game?

Other things to note

I prefer women travelers as I am a woman and my part-time roommate is male and travels often. We are LGBTQ friendly.

It was very nice stay at cozy place, with a nice cat, and friendly hosts. I have got excellent recommendations about Chicago's highlights and cozy bars that one can find only Insider hints.

This was my first airbnb stay. Sheila is a super host. She and her roomate Nick are great people. They were very accommodating, helpful and friendly while respectful of boundaries. We chatted a lot, they made us pancakes one morning, they gave us tips on Chicago and took us to a farmers market. Their place is really cool, the neighborhood is very nice and safe (we walked around at night with no worries) I really enjoyed my stay here with my husband and we would def. stay here again!

My name is Sheila. I am a worker in a local non-for-profit. My roommate and best friend, Nick is a craftsperson who loves community and travels a lot for work and visiting the various places he calls home. I like being creative, but would never call myself an artist. More crafty than anything else. I would love to travel to Asia again someday.

As a traveler, I am low-key, low-maintenance and helpful. Its the art of being present and useful but not being underfoot. Understanding that people have a need for both company and solitude.

Nick is friendly, outgoing, and very helpful, and has a quiet contemplative side as well. He has traveled all over the US.
